 US Department of State says no political solution possible in Syria without Russia

A political settlement of the conflict in Syria requires the involvement of Russia and Iran into discourse.

This was announced by U.S. Department of State spokesman John Kirby, Censor.NET reports.

"You can't get to a political solution in Syria without a transition away from Assad and to a more inclusive representative government, and you can't get to that transition if you can't have a dialogue with those who have a stake in Syria's political future and influence over the Assad regime. And Russia and Iran have both. They have a stake in Syria. Whether we like it or not is immaterial; they do," Kirby said.

He noted the rejection of having Iran and the Russian Federation at the table would be "irresponsible."

"It would be irresponsible in terms of trying to reach the final outcome if you didn't have them at the table at some point and in some capacity to have this dialogue," Kirby stated.

He also stressed that no representatives of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad plan to attend talks in Vienna.
